5 Reasons the Women's HIAC Match did not live up to expectations
Make no mistake about it. Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks did create history today. Not only was this the first ever Hell in a Cell match featuring two women, it was also the first time that two women have closed a Pay-Per-View.
The timing was right because this was a match in Sasha’s hometown, and we knew that with the hot crowd in attendance, the women would totally steal the show. Sure, they did put on a great match, but the ultimate outcome honestly left a lot to be desired. Especially after those stunning entrances by the two women.
Here’s what we felt went wrong with the Sasha Banks-Charlotte Flair main event, and why it wasn’t the classic we thought it would be.
#5 We’ve seen this match several times already
Now that the main roster has been split into two, the Women’s Division on both Raw and Smackdown are paper thin. As a consequence, we are forced to see the same matches over and over again on Raw, weekly.
We’ve been seeing variations of the Charlotte-Sasha feud from their NXT days, and off late, since the brand split, they’ve had several matches together. The only difference this time is that they were competing in a ‘Hell in a Cell’.
Considering that Sasha Banks gets a title opportunity because of her rematch clause, we’re not done with them for a while either. While we were reasonably excited about this contest from a historic standpoint, there was absolutely nothing fresh about Charlotte and Sasha inside HIAC.
Before you call us a ‘cuppa haters’, we are still happy for them.
